Police respond to takeover attempt at Roane Academy

Law enforcement responded to another disturbance at Roane Academy Monday evening.

Roane County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Tim Phillips said some juveniles housed at the facility injured some staff members.

“They did cause a big ruckus and try to incite a takeover,” Phillips said.

Monday’s disturbance followed an eventful weekend that included two escapes. That’s at least the fourth at Roane Academy in the past month.
